Langley Stamps slay Giants

Last Sunday, Langley put an end to Chilliwack’s modest win streak.

The aptly named Chilliwack Giants, one of the top teams in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s 12-man midget division, had their two-game unbeaten streak snapped by the host Langley Stampeders on Sunday.

First quarter action at McLeod Stadium was played between the 30-yard lines with both defences playing shutdown football.

In the second quarter, Langley put together a nice 70-yard drive, topped off by an 11-yard touchdown toss by quarterback Joss Yanciw to Simon Odong.

Chilliwack then responded with an 18-yard field goal.

The Giants’ final drive in the second quarter was halted with a timely interception by Riley Carter to end the half at 7-3.

The third stanza saw many exciting plays on both sides of the ball, however, neither defence conceded any points

The final stanza continued to be highly competitive.

The Stampeders marched the ball from their 26 into Giants territory, before their drive stalled. But a face mask penalty against the Giants put Langley in position to add a field goal.

The Giants put two more drives together, both of which were snuffed out by the Stampeders defensive backs.

Interceptions by Dalton Delaney on one series and Kyle Clarot on another sealed the 10-3 win for Langley.

With the win, the Stampeders move into a tie for third place in their division, with a game in hand.

Next up for the Stamps in a home game Sunday, Oct. 11, against the Comox Raiders.

Opening kickoff is 2:30 p.m. at McLeod Stadium.
